Friday update: Schultz is listed as questionable to play this week after getting limited practices in, but he will play, per Michael Gehlken.

Thursday update: Schultz ended up being listed as limited on Wednesday and was listed as limited again on Thursday.

Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz did not participate in Wednesday practice ahead of the Cowboys’ Sunday matchup against the Chicago Bears. Schultz has been dealing with a PCL sprain and tweaked his knee last Sunday against the Lions, but was able to re-enter the game.

Fantasy football implications for Week 8

Schultz has already missed some time this year. Throughout the season, he has totaled 129 receiving yards over 14 receptions, 49 of which came in last week’s win over the Detroit Lions.

Schultz’s backup at tight end is Jake Ferguson, who has added 67 yards and a touchdown over four games this season. Ferguson’s score came against the Philadelphia Eagles in a game that Schultz was sidelined for.

Dak Prescott favors his wide receivers over tight ends in target shares no matter what, so this shouldn’t cause too much of a ripple effect on fantasy this week.
